At the start of the 2018 year, I had found a large interest in e-commerce and had decided to learn about the amazing opportunities this marketplace has to offer. What better way to learn about online shopping and entrepreneurship than to experience it first hand.
I have put a lot of man-hours into creating this company as I am a perfectionist and understand the importance of the customers experience on websites —the number of sales directly corresponds to how professional it looks. I have put about 70 different products with tons of variants on the site ranging from men and women, sunglasses, watches and jewelry. All products have a nice profit margin and orders are easy to fulfill as there are all from the drop shipping service called Oberlo. In short, all the hard work is done. Settings are optimized, all functions on the site are operational and included comes with email and social media accounts.
Along with the store itself, there is...
Twitter, (Social Media)
Facebook, (Social Media)
Instagram, (Social Media)
Shopify Payments, (Payment option)
PayPal, (Payment option) *possibly
Gmail, (Control Account) *possibly
Kit, (Social Media)
Oberlo, (Order fulfillment service)
Aliexpress, ((Order fulfillment service)
Coinbase Commerce, (Payment option)
Large customer base contacts used for email marketing
The business model North Notloc follows is called dropshipping. This is an awesome model for anyone one because there is no need to hold any inventory personally. Customers purchase products on the site, provide their shipping information and then the owner of North Notloc then takes that information to Oberlo and orders that product for the person who bought on North Notloc.
Over the past few months, I have had a few Facebook campaigns with varying results. My main reason for selling the is business, I enjoy the technical side of running this business however when it comes to marketing, I am not strong. Everything is set up from privacy policies to being able to fulfill orders smoothly and efficiently. I am just not good at presenting my hard work.
